Nepantla Cultural Arts Gallery was created as a multi-use safe haven for marginalized artists. Nepantla is a Nahuatl word meaning “the space in the middle” or “torn between ways.” The term is often used to describe an alternative space created by under-resourced communities to heal and engage in strategies of resistance. Opened by Jake Prendez and Judy Avitia-Gonzalez in 2018, Nepantla Cultural Arts Gallery hosts art exhibitions and workshops along with spoken word, music, and arts events.
